The regulatory requirement for Design-for-Safety (DfS) was enforced since August 2016. It requires stakeholders to work together to address foreseeable risks right from the conceptual design to the construction of the project. During the construction stage, the DfS review meetings will involve the design & supervision team from the Consultants and construction team from the Contractor. They will participate in reviewing safety and health risks relating to design and propose mitigation measures for implementation.

This Competency Requirement document specifies the performance criteria, underpinning knowledge, range and context for the design, training and assessment of the Design for Safety Professionals (DfSP) Course. Learners of this course will gain the knowledge and skills for fulfilling the roles of the construction in accordance with the guideline on Design for Safety and Health in Buildings and Structures.

Sweeping global developments on the public health front have given new meaning to the phrase a new normal. While contemporary measures such as remote working and physical dividers serve as stopgap solutions to maintain a semblance of normalcy, true economic recovery can only be possible if we can inch closer to pre-pandemic times.Smart building solutions have been steadily gaining traction over the years, being accelerated in recent times to how technology can be utilised to safeguard human health and wellbeing. With technology helping to ensure the health of a building for its occupants, our built environment can be well-equipped to face the new normal.In this SGBC Webinar supported by SGBC Founding Member Schneider Electric, find out how smart technology can help to shape healthy buildings.

This webinar will provide an introduction to new Singapore Standards on Glazing in buildings Safety related to human impact (SS 653: 2020) and Curtain walls (SS 654 : 2020). Glazed elements in and around buildings may be subject to human impact, which could result in injury to the public and/or damage to finishes or other parts of the building. SS 653 provides the requirements to designers and installers of such glazed components on the materials and techniques to adopt in order to minimise the risk of injury to the public. This standard serves as a reference for the specification of glazed elements that may be subject to human impact. SS 654 specifies the materials and performance standards for metal-framed curtain walls and requirements for good practices in the design and installation of a curtain wall system. The performance standard includes tests for air permeability, water-tightness and structural performance. This webinar also highlights the major changes that are incorporated into this new standard compared with the previous SS 381 and CP 96.
